ParentSquare is a blast! It puts the fun in home-school communication. It’s ease of use is what makes it so fun. ParentSquare is a social media type of scrolling information page where you share the ongoing story of your school. Dates, times, events, schedules, fund raisers…it’s all here.
This is going to save our staff so much time!
I love ParentSquare as both a parent and as a school administrator. This platform has improved home-to-school communication tenfold. As a parent I feel more connected to my daughter’s school and teacher then ever before. As a school administrator I am able to send out more frequent communication and spend less time sending them out, so a win-win.
This system has allowed us to customize groups in order to communicate with specific stakeholder groups. We no longer “spray” communication to everyone, but are able to target groups which has been a game changer from our former parent communication tool.
Parent Square is the ultimate communication tool. It can do it all.
ParentSquare is absolutely incredible when it comes to support! You and your team have been wonderful to work with. We work with many other vendors and you guys are by far the best in client support. Please know how much we appreciate all that you do to support us. We are so happy with our decision to incorporate ParentSquare into our school communications!
The automated call makes it nice letting parents know that their student is absent but what makes it really great is the convenience it allows to let parents write back instantly to excuse their child and has significantly reduced unexcused absences.
Dana Lile, MSD of Wayne Township
ParentSquare is a one-stop location to give and receive communication from your child’s school. It has many features to fit the needs of classrooms and school as well as translating capabilities.
We are excited to have ParentSquare as our new communication platform for school communication. ParentSquare enables us to streamline and simplify communications for parents (a one-stop shop for families) as well as have one division-wide communication tool for all staff.
Our parents LOVE ParentSquare. We just started using it and have found it a very effective way to communicate with our families and get them engaged. Super easy to use for both parents and staff.
ParentSquare is the all in one communication tool that for a long time only existed in educator’s dreams. I’d imagine many administrators stayed up way past their bedtimes on many nights trying to replicate the capabilities that ParentSquare has. It’s hard to overstate the impact ParentSquare has had on our local schools.
Tremendously successful! …really helped us increase participation of the community in giving and the amount that was given.
Alice Dawson, Portage Township Schools
I love Parent Square because Communication is the Key to EVERYTHING! In order for us to navigate this school thing called (Education), we must be informed properly. Parent Square allows the proper communication from PTS District Wide. No One is “Left Behind” due to race, language barriers, or social economic status. All “YOU” have to do is Sign In. I Love It! Thank you for Parent Square!!
Its the bridge between Parents
Its the bridge between Parents and Teachers as well as a window to all the events happening at school. It’s the best way to be informed and to communicate.
I would call ParentSquare the great connector. It helps us to communicate with parents. Staff, students and come unity quickly. It is easy to use and has multiple ways to connect with our school community.. it has opened lines of communication in unprecedented times. It has helped to keep everyone informed about what is happening at school.
Dana R. Jarrett
ParentSquare is working out very well for our school. 99.3% communication is the best ever had here at Davidson Elementary.
ParentSquare has changed how our school community communicates. Everything you need to communicate with your school community can be found in one place: direct messages, permission forms, emergency communications. We love it!
I am quickly able to communicate to all my staff, students, and parents with text, photos, and great detail. I love the interactive nature of this system!
Our district really likes ParentSquare for communication to all concerned parties, students, parents, staff, etc. It is a great tool and easy to use.
ParentSquare is a lifesaver when it comes to sharing information quickly with our stakeholders in several different formats!
ParentSquare is the ultimate school hub that we have been looking for to help us streamline our communications.
ParentSquare is an app that makes it super easy and streamlined to communicate with kiddos’ parents in the ways that are most convenient for them.
Dr. Thomas Mitchell
Parent Square is very efficient, easy to use, and provides data regarding stakeholder communications. I Absolutely LOVE IT!!!
I love parent square not only as an Administrative Assistant but as a parent as well. Parent Square is very informative, keeps parents up to date with events at the school and important things occurring at the school.
Great communication tool for school sites! We love all the additional functions that allow us to reach more families and continue to build community even through distance learning.
Parent Square has allowed our school to communicate so much more efficiently. We can ask for volunteers, create groups for different committees within the school, and organize our alumni easily. I also use it at my older child’s school, so I can’t think of a better way to get information out this quickly to so many people!
A necessary platform for open communication with parents! Posting messages to all is incredible. Getting the immediate feedback of appreciation and replies make it so easy to connect with parents. Being able to search a child’s name to directly message parents makes it simple to send emails. I came from a school where I used ParentSquare and started mid year on my current campus. I couldn’t order it and get it up and running soon enough!
Pete Just, CTO, Wayne Township MSD
I’m getting rave feedback about how ParentSquare is making our home-school connection a breeze while schools are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s become a linchpin in helping us to be successful with this.
Parent Square has been an excellent additional form of communication between our teachers, parents and school. It is user friendly and has a variety of aspects from absence reporting to conference scheduling to parent/teacher interaction, that we find to be very positive when communicating with our parents. We are excited about using it at our school.
ParentSquare is an amazing communication platform that is simple and easy to use. It’s literally a one-stop-shop for all school communication. Our school community has fully embraced and supported ParentSquare.
ParentSquare is the perfect platform
ParentSquare is the perfect platform to send targeted messages to your school’s staff, families, and students. Already having your school groups created makes it quick and simple.
It has greatly enhanced communication across our schools, in and out of the classroom and ensured that our families are receiving communications rather than playing the guessing game!
An easy to use program to increase parental involvement in your schools. It is easier to share information with parents, students, and staff. Customer support is quick to assist with any issues and resolves problems quickly and efficiently.
Brian Dawes, Murray Utah
This is a simple and effective way to reach our parents. I appreciate the translate option which helps us reach the majority of our parents.
Parent Square is the best investment we have made all year! Our parents and staff absolutely love it. The user experience is well thought out and the product speaks for itself. Thank you Parent Square for making our school communication such a breeze!
ParentSquare is the lifeline between our district, schools and parents. It came at the perfect time. With all of the challenges we are facing this year, ParentSquare has allowed us to stay connected with our parents and created an easy way for parents to communicate with our schools and teachers.
ParentSquare’s robust and secure communication platform is backed by an amazing team that provides top notch support and service. Districts face many challenges when rolling out new technology including funding and end-user adoption, therefore strong vendor relationships play a key role in our success criteria. The ParentSquare team acts as a partner to Santa Barbara Unified District, offering excellence in service and support.
It has made for such easier conversations with parents! The posts feature is great and offers a lot of elements. Signing up for Parent Conferences was the easiest it has EVER been!
Trisch Aust, BASIS Independent Schools
ParentSquare is a student information system as well as a parent and student communication system. It keeps all of our school-wide communications organized in one place so anyone can search and find past communications from all our teachers. It is valuable to our student services, auxiliary, operations and communications teams.
Valerie Miller, Instructional Technology Coordinator, University Place
I love ParentSquare because it has helped us mainstream communication and get our staff on the same page. It had increased our family engagement and has bridged gaps through the translation features. It has also helped our district technology realize we need to move into this century with other platforms we support. 😂
I Looooovvveeeeee ParentSquare because it’s absolutely user friendly. It the main source of communication with our parents and the effective way to pass information on to families. It is hands down a great app 😉
ParentSquare has made it easier for us to communicate in a variety of formats and with whole school or targeted groups. The messages feature is appreciated by both staff and parents. ParentSquare has improved our two way communication with families.
ParentSquare is wonderful. This is such a great tool to have. We are able to reach out to so many students and staff at one time. Parents get messages right to them in so many different ways. They are able to look at their students information so easily. I just love it!
Mary Lee Wren
ParentSquare allows our school to have so many necessary tools in one private password protected place for our parents; outbound communications at the school and every grade level, group communications, parent volunteer sign ups, photo sharing, document sharing, school calendaring, online forms/surveys AND it has it own APP for easy parent access.
ParentSquare is a great communication tool for our schools, loved by parents and teachers! ParentSquare is easy to use and effectively accomplishes our communication goals.
Communication is always important, but during the pandemic it has been CRITICAL. ParentSquare has been an invaluable resource, keeping us connected with parents and students throughout our response. The program is easy to use for staff and teachers as well as our families. The flexibility of the platform and responsiveness of the support team has been a key component to our success in providing instruction to students during the pandemic, providing a reliable connection with our families and enabling us to bringing students back to school in person safely while we continue to provide virtual learning for those at home.
ParentSquare is an easy-to-use communication system that has truly simplified and enhanced our family engagement opportunities!
The intersection between schools and parents is ParentSquare. The perfect way to allow families to control just how much information they want to receive and how involved they want to be in their child’s education.
Easiest way to mass communicate with families. One stop shop when it comes to communication. Has several features to make the life of educators easier including polls, sign-ups. We use it for parents to virtually signup for Parent Teacher Conference. Has allowed us to communicate through the pandemic with ease.
Great way to build a partnership between home and school!
The customer service is incredible in addition to working with me when I don’t know how to do something, they are open to our ideas and are continually making the product better.
ParentSquare has been a game changer for our school’s communications. We are able to message out regular bulletins, alerts, and direct messages with our community! The features are broad and allow us to get creative with our messages. The biggest component of the platform is the translation piece. Our parents can easily translate the message into their home language.
ParentSquare has enabled us to greatly improve our parent communication, helping us become more transparent, responsive, and effective.
“ParentSquare has not only opened up two way communication between our school and our families, but it has allowed families to get an inside look of what goes on in our classrooms.”
ParentSquare is a great platform for both disseminating and gathering information and it is a fantastic communication tool.
Being able to easily access prepared Parent Square messages through the Message Library is such a gift. Knowing that messages are prepared takes that worry off my list in the event of an emergency or last minute schedule change.
I love Parent Square because it is the best home-school communication portal. PS provides an effective way to communicate with our families and also share great things that are happening at our school. I also appreciate that messages are translated automatically to the parent’s language which makes communication much easier.
ParentSquare is the modern family and community engagement platform for the social media generation! We love ParentSquare because it does it all: emergency calls, informational emails, parent conference sign ups, digital forms with electronic signatures, and secure classroom communication. Did I mention that they have an app??
It allows us to better communicate with families and keep them up to date with all school events and important information.
Our parents love ParentSquare. It has helped to streamline communication and keep all important information in one spot. During a Town Hall meeting, we had a parent tell us how thankful she was because she did not have space on her phone for all the different apps and now she can communicate with her children’s teachers and find out what time practice is all in one place.
ParentSquare breaks through communication barriers to allow us to reach all of our families. We can easily see who is receiving communications and target those families that need additional support accessing messages and information.
I can send alerts and notifications to parents anywhere at any time! It’s pretty cool
ParentSquare is hands-down the best way for our teachers, administration, and school groups to communicate with parents and the community. This is our first year using the product and all parties involved are amazed at how simple and powerful it is. ParentSquare is also completely reliable (something that we cannot say about the systems which it has replaced).
Our school is extremely grateful for Parent Square and all the services they offer. We appreciate the ability to be able to connect and communicate with our families using a company that is attentive, cutting edge, and compassionate.
Eric Acosta-Verprauskus, Principal, Verde K-8 School, West Contract Costa USD (CA)
ParentSquare has revolutionized communication between Verde School and its caregivers. The ability to automatically translate into a caregiver’s preferred language, the ability to communicate two ways, the ability to prioritize communications, the ability to automatically cross-post to Facebook and our website, the ability to see metrics on who is able to access the communications and who is not, and the ability to hold polls: all have been really wonderful additions to our communication abilities, thanks to ParentSquare.
ParentSquare is so easy to use! I can communicate with the individuals needed and make posts to send out information whenever I need to.
Jasmine, Odyssey Charter School
I appreciate the communication that can easily be delivered to parents (weekly for our school) with days in advance. I love how easy it is to upload files to post as well as the appreciate and comment box for parents.
Parentsquare serves as a hub for our school community. It connects all stakeholders: Admin, Teachers, and Families with the most up to date information.
Parent Square has been a wonderful way for our office to communicate with parents. Parents tend to respond much quicker than if we had to leave a voice mail on their phone.
Ralph Salenga, Alum Rock Union School District
We just recently acquired Parentsquare. It has a simple User Interface that we can navigate through, not only that we can talk to someone through chat that can help support us on what we need. The platform has a lot more than what we had in the past.
I love ParentSquare
I love ParentSquare because communication can be sent out with more eye appealing graphics and parents can stay connected right with their phone.
ParentSquare has been one of the best changes we’ve ever implemented at our school. Staff and parents agree: we all love ParentSquare.
Tania Sanders, Oakdale Elementary School
I love ParentSquare because it is a great way for students, teachers, and parents to communicate with each other. It also allows the parent to see what is going on in the school when the student is at school or home for any reason. I especially like the direct messaging feature. It is another way to send an instant message to a parent’s phone that they will read daily because some parents do not check email daily.
Fantastic communication tool – a must have!
I love having an archive
I love having an archive of all the messages sent for the year in one place. I also love that I can go back and edit a post. Having parents sign up to bring supply’s and volunteer for activities is priceless!
ParentSquare customer support is among the best I’ve ever seen. Also, we GREATLY appreciate the hustle that went into getting the Health Screener added. Staff and parents LOVE it!
Parent Square is fantastic! Creating posts and newsletters is super easy, visually appealing, translates into home language, and keeps a record of communication – its everything I need.
ParentSquare has not only opened up two way communication between our school and our families, but it has allowed families to get an inside look of what goes on in our classrooms.
Parent Square is the linking tool between school and parents. I was able to community directly with my child’s teacher, or principal and get a response right away.
ParentSquare is a great tool to communicate with families and is easy to use! There are so many great features that make planning field trips, class parties, and posting pictures a breeze!
ParentSquare is the best tool we’ve invested in all year. It’s raised the quality of our communication with our families and best of all, our parents, teachers, and staff all love it! The user experience is well thought out and the product speaks for itself.
ParentSquare has made our communication with families exponentially easier and broadened our reach into our parent community.
We launched ParentSquare because we were having difficulties with messages not being delivered in our old system. We had planned a slow introduction, but the pandemic changed all that. We hit the ground running and ParentSquare was right there with us. We’re still learning and ParentSquare has been a fantastic partner in this adventure. Thanks for helping us during this crazy adventure.
Dee Dee Harrison
The ability to send out mass communication to our families keeps important information at our parents’ fingertips. The feature to communicate with our families no matter their language is a major plus and allows a greater sense of partnership between the school and home!
Best communication tool we have ever had, and very user friendly
Communicating with our community has never been easier, from an IT standpoint ParentSquare has been very easy to implement and has boosted our community engagement.
ParentSquare provides a portal that has it all! From communication, to sign-ups, ParentSquare is a one stop shop for our parents and staff.
Felicia Friend Linton
The value of easy communication with families is amazing and worth the funding.
It makes communication so simple………….when we think, “I wish the parents knew that”…………they can, with a simple click of a button!
It’s a great way to communicate with families and to build community.
About 1 hour ago I posted the needs our Teacher Cadets had for a concession stand they are setting up. Within 1 hour we have volunteers signed up to bring in the supplies requested. This is incredible! We’ve used, email, texting, and Facebook in the past. I’ve never seen this type of quick response. Our parents love Parent Square and being able to interact. Thank you for making this tool available to our school. We are excited to see how we grow this year!
This is our second year using Parent Square at Hope School. The Hope School community has always felt like one big family and Parent Square has greatly enhanced our ability to communicate to all of our family members. Thank you Parent Square!
Sergio Maldonado, Taylor Elementary/Santa Maria Bonita School District
Its the bridge between Parents and Teachers as well as a window to all the events happening at school. It’s the best way to be informed and to communicate.
ParentSquare has doubled, if not tripled, our community engagement. This user-friendly communication platform provides a one-stop shop for our parents, staff and students to easily receive information and communicate with one another.
The best invention for schools ever!
Megan B. Cahill Morris
I love ParentSquare because I can communicate quickly and efficiently with my families in a manner of their choosing. It helps keep our school community strong and engaged.
ParentSquare has been such a positive change in how we communicate with our community, families, and staff.
ParentSquare is an all-in-one resource to communicate to the school community. It takes away and confusion of multiple modes of communication. Makes things simple!
ParentSquare is the easiest platform I have ever trained teachers in. While it has plenty of advanced features, the basics are intuitive and straightforward, making it comfortable for a range of users.
We love Parent Square because it offers everything we need to communicate whether it be to an individual or the entire corporation. It is user friendly and fast. The Language translation is also a big plus!
ParentSquare allows me to have instant two-way communication with the entire school. ParentSquare allows my teachers to create a classroom community that fosters parent involvement. I have noticed a dramatic increase in parent participation since we starting using ParentSquare two years ago. We love ParentSquare!
Parent Square is easy, intuitive, and efficient! It takes care of all of our school communication needs.
ParentSquare has been so beneficial to our organization as a whole. We have 5 Learning Centers and this has been great on so many levels for me not only as Admin, but as a parent. During Covid, we were able to use the Emergency features to contact families and let them know that all classes would be moving online. We are able to edit rosters with ease and have been able to have great customer service when we have come across any issues or questions. I love the archive features on old posts but was sad to lose posts from previous years due to the Summer Rollover and Sync losing my Admin account. That is probably the one and only issue I have ever had and everything else has gone quite smoothly. I love knowing as a parent that my children’s Teachers and admin can keep me updated on anything and everything that is important. Thank You ParentSquare!
We are very pleased with the efficiency of the program and the time-saving aspect. We feel ParentSquare has raised the quality of our communication with our families and allowed our teachers to build stronger relationship with parents. Thank you so much for your support and an outstanding product!
The staff goes above and beyond what is expected. Everyone has been extremely friendly. I can’t think of anything bad to say at all!!
Parent Square is very intuitive and easy to operate. I feel like the features are very useful in the school setting. The options to reach specific families or groups are helpful.
ParentSquare is a wonderful program to communicate with parents. It’s certainly hard to beat and we are very happy with this program.
ParentSquare has helped us in the process of bringing all of our communication with parents under one umbrella. Now, more than ever, with clear, consistent communication being absolutely necessary, this is a powerful tool.
This was a game changer for our District. It allowed us to react quickly and efficiently during COVID by providing a reliable platform to communicate with students and parents.
Lynsie Steele, Mountaintop Montessori
ParentSquare is an essential software component to our school that connects parents, staff and children in an extremely streamlined and user-friendly way. It’s fun to use and helps draw out the creative sides of our faculty while at the very same time successfully delivering important information regarding our students’ daily experiences to their eager parents. Used often and in the right ways, ParentSquare has been an essential building block to increasing an engaged and active school community!
I love ParentSquare because it’s a unified platform. It supports both parents and teacher to ensure that we are all communicating. It’s creative, it’s engaging, it’s fun, it’s informative, it’s resourceful! It’s all we need!
ParentSquare is an amazing parent communication tool, especially during distance learning. My favorite uses features of ParentSquare are the forms and if parents do not submit the form it is easy to send a reminder to those parents. I also love that our teachers can schedule conferences. But the one part of ParentSquare I love the most is the customer help line. Without a doubt they are always quick to respond and friendly. I have reached out several times and they always solve my issue in about five minutes or less. I appreciate you making ParentSquare such user friendly!
Parent Square untangles the spaghetti-involved mess that comes with communicating with students, teachers, parents, and staff.
ParentSquare has been a game changer for our school district! Communication options are now consolidated and can be tailored to fits the needs of both the sender and recipient. Add-on features such as forms, parent conference scheduling, health screening, and more quickly became go-to items to streamline our workflow, and we only a few months into implementation. Parents, teachers, and administrators are raving about the ease of use and overall functionality. In short, ParentSquare rocks!
ParentSquare and StudentSquare have quickly become a vital part of how we communicate with our students and families. It offers a simple and quick means of relaying attendance, academic, and extra-curricular information.
ParentSquare is a safe and secure platform for all school-to-home communication. A two-way group messaging, private conversations, district-wide alerts and notices, and simple user interface. It’s an Open Gateway for Home to School.
ParentSquare is a fast, easy and effective way to communicate with teachers and parents. I don’t know what we ever did without it.
Great customer service. Always willing to troubleshoot and help when we’re stuck. Great communication service. Our school couldn’t function without it, especially during COVID.
ParentSquare has become an essential resource to our school, especially in the current Covid times. The Health Screenings have been crucial in our daily routine. Once again PS, you have streamlined the communication hub with our parents!
ParentSquare puts it all together. It works because it has solutions to communication issues on both the school and the parent side. It has significantly also cut back on the amount of paperwork we send home. As the school secretary, ParentSquare has changed the way I work on a daily basis.
Kathleen Perdisatt, Saugus Union School District
Streamlining parent communication was something we wanted to work on. We never imagined we would need to use the emergency communication as often as we have this year. Parents have been grateful for our quick updates and responses in time of great stress. It has helped us forge a stronger community in times of trial.
ParentSquare is a very user friendly communication platform. My building uses it as our main source of regular communication. It allows for cross posting: you can create a ParentSquare post, and send the same post out to social media outlets simultaneously. I especially like how we are able to see the percentage of our school community that our communication is actually reaching.
Gavin T. Colvert
Our school community is blessed with many caring and involved parents. Over the years, we have been using various separate systems for school-to-home communications, volunteer sign-ups, file-sharing, and community engagement. Our families wanted a single, easy-to-use, reliable, school-to-home communication tool. ParentSquare has provided this solution for us and parents are thrilled with the new service. Organizing volunteers for Trunk-or-Treat and our annual Carnival has never been easier. We also love the ability to send voice and text alerts when needed. Thank you ParentSquare!
Brett English, BASIS San Antonio Primary – North Central Campus
I love ParentSquare! I love having EVERYTHING you need in one place. It has eliminated the use of sites such as Signup Genius or EventBrite and allows communication to be in a centralized location.
ParentSquare is an admin’s best friend. It has made connecting with parents significantly easier!
Noemi C., Bilingual Clerk, Val Verde High School
The functionality to be able to adjust settings as making groups to track out to parents! And now being able to get creative and add canva creations to my posts!
Brenda Bonilla, Apple Valley Unified School District
I love ParentSquare because I can easily have access to direct messaging my students teachers❤️
ParentSquare takes communicating with families to the next level. It’s social media-ish without the overwhelmingness of social media platforms or the limitations of other communication systems.
I am deeply passionate about empowering our families with information so that they can make the best decisions for their children. ParentSquare has allowed us to reach our families in a way that was not possible before.
Paulette Smith, School Administrator
Parent Square is an effective tool to communicate with all community stakeholders. I love the ease with which I can add photos and create a special online message to parents and staff. I also like the translation tool. I am using the platform to communicate my staff bulletin and all Parent Bulletins.
Parent square is like a facebook for our school. It lets us instantly connect with our families and vice versa. Its a perfect way for us to let them know about upcoming events and lets teachers communicate with the parents about grades, behavior, needed materials for classroom. It has allowed for us to better communicate with parents. Parents really appreciate the app and the easiness of using the app!
ParentSquare was just launched and we had a situation that required after hours communication with staff and parents. I lamented over the incident, but was over the moon with the ease, intuitiveness, and immediacy of this tool!! So glad to be on board!
ParentSquare is easy to use and a great tool for communicating with families whose language is not English. It is a win-win for both school and family.
It has been wonderful to use ParentSquare’s unique features! We’ve been able to connect with parents & students more often as a result of these features as well.
ParentSquare provides school sites and school districts quick and easy communication to parents. As a site administrator I used ParentSquare on a daily basis.
As an administrator, it is my “one stop shop” to communicate with my parents, teachers and staff. With virtual learning, it has been very helpful to stay connected with our community.
As a preschool communications director it is imperative that I reach my families with ease. Parent Sqaure makes eblasts, newsletter distribution and photo sharing so easy, even for our most tech averse community members. Thank you for connecting us through Parent Square!
Ann Marie Caballero
So easy to learn and easy to use!
A well thought out solution that allows school wide communication with great management tools and tons of features.
ParentSquare is quick, easy, reliable, and effective. It has transformed my emergency and routine communications into a quicker and less stressful process.
Angelina Calderon, District Administrator
Parent Square is an amazing communication tool! It allows us to communicate district wide, school wide, by grade level, in small groups and individually with families by email, text and phone call.
ParentSquare helps me develop deeper connections with my parents who aren’t always available to participate on site in person!
Parent Square has enabled our district to have an exceptionally strong communication system. While this is always a critical part of the success of a district, this year, more than ever, it has been vital. Thank you, Parent Square!
It is an efficient way to share information in a reliable format to the entire district.
ParentSquare has absolutely changed the way we communicate with our parents. It’s incredible in the fact that it is so user-friendly our staff and parents can easily use it to communicate whether they are at the computer or on their mobile devices. ParentSquare also makes it convenient to push out important information to our parents to get immediate feedback. One of the best features is that parents can decide how often to be communicated with by using the “digest” setting where they get all emails sent throughout the day in one email in the evening. I rarely hear, “I’m getting too many emails!” I highly recommend ParentSquare to any school who wants to improve their parent to school connection.
ParentSquare is helping Sierra Sands revolutionize our school-to-home communications.
Through text, email, and push notifications, we are able to reach out to our parents and community in ways that we were never able to before. Through general notifications, alert messages, absence reporting, lunch account balances, calendar’s and more, we are finally reaching parents where they are. They can receive these messages in the manner that makes the most sense for them. We are very excited about this improved school-to-home communication tool!
We’re loving ParentSquare so far. In just our second week of school, we’re receiving feedback from families who are so grateful to have a streamlined platform for all school communications. It’s so nice to know that we made the right choice after all of the various companies/platforms we assessed.
I think that ParentSquare is
I think that ParentSquare is amazing as a great way to communicate to parents and staff. It is an easy to use, inclusive and positive means to make connections with all stakeholders for our students.
Irreplaceable! ParentSquare has helped us reach those volunteers that possibly may never have volunteered.
Great purchase for seamless school-community communications.
A revolutionary way for schools to keep in contact with parent and students.
Lito M. Garcia
ParentSquare is a tremendous asset to our school. The ease at which we are able to push out information and seek help from our school community is such an asset to me as the principal and our PTSA. Without ParentSquare are ability to include more parents/guardians in our school would be diminished. Parentsquare helps build community and involvement!
Matt Smith – Director, Mare Island Technology Academy
We used ParentSquare extensively during the Napa fires because MIT Academy (in Vallejo, just a few miles from the fires) was enveloped in a thick blanket of hazardous smoke and we had to first go into a shelter-in-place, and then subsequently cancel school for two days. During all this time my primary communication device with parents was ParentSquare, supplemented by social media and local media. But the latter two were hardly necessary as ParentSquare did all the heavy lifting and we were able to communicate with parents and students quickly and efficiently. In fact, we were praised for our good communication, so ParentSquare not only did a terrific job, it made me look good, which is no easy task! We are very glad we brought ParentSquare on board, it’s been an amazing technology for everyone – our administrators, staff, teachers and most importantly, our parents!
Parent Square makes it so incredibly simple and easy to send information, share photos, distribute fliers, and reach the entire district with just a few clicks. Anytime I have a question or don’t know how to do something, I get an impressively quick response with the help I need. Who doesn’t love that?!?
ParentSquare has been the best thing we have engaged in for our district. Their customer care is incredible and the ease of use of the platform is a plus. PSq has increased our parent engagement and transparency.
Parent Square is by far a more comprehensive program than our old ‘auto-dialer’. In fact, phone calls home are only a small part of the program. The ability to send emails, text messages and have parent respond allows us to really maximize our communication with parents. Additionally, as teachers are coming on board, they are really appreciating having the ability to use this program at the classroom level
Karen Sulahian, School Administrator
Parent Square makes sending out notices and posting calendar events so quick – just two or three clicked, and I’m done.
ParentSquare is the ultimate communication tool for schools – a one-stop-shop for all of our districts needs.
Thank you for this great tool. I set up a Box filing system five years or so ago for our school then and we were just wishing we had something like this then. Here at the high school, it’s essential!
Mark Koča, El Dorado Springs R-2
It is quick and easy to send messages to the right people and, as all messages are stored, no worry about Board Policy violations regarding electronic communication.
ParentSquare aids by opening communication channels and encouraging a two-way communication flow between home and school work. Ensuring that everyone’s ideas, changes, and news are communicated. ParentSquare helps implement open communication channels by developing trust and inclusivity among parents and teachers.
ParentSquare has been the best platform we have used in our school.
Easiest and quickest way to reach parents, staff, and students!
The most thoughtful and well designed school-to-home communication tool to come along in quite some time.
ParentSquare has been an absolute game-changing asset in helping with our parental engagement. In this virtual environment, I have been able to connect with parents in a very meaningful way. And the analytics allow us to keep abreast of parents whose contacts change in real-time. It’s a valuable tool in our toolkit.
I would describe Parent Square as the perfect match when it comes to reaching our students and the need of our school!
ParentSquare is an amazing communication platform that is simple and easy to use. It’s literally a one-stop-shop for all school communication. Our school community has fully embraced and supported ParentSquare.
I am scared to think how hard communicating with parents would have been during this pandemic without ParentSquare!
ParentSquare is a great platform to connect families with school/PTA information and their teachers. Families are able to plan playdates, sign up to volunteer and easily reach out directly to their teachers. It’s a wonderful tool for PTA to promote school events and fundraisers. Overall, ParentSquare has been great to build our school community in one place. However to fully utilize ParentSquare, every family and teacher needs to register on ParentSquare. Most importantly, registrants also need to be active on ParentSquare by using it for posts, direct messages, etc. to really see the benefits of investing in ParentSquare.

Parent square is easy to use “right out of the box”! Within a week of going live with ParentSquare, my school was already communicating with more than 95% of our families. Teachers and parents love it. We seldom hear a family say they didn’t know about something.
From the school office personnel side of things, it is super helpful and makes contacting parents so much easier. More parents are engaging with us now than ever before and it is so easy to get responses.
We’ve just started using ParentSquare and I can already see an increase in parent engagement!
Parent Square has absolutely changed the way we communicate with our parents and teachers. It’s incredible in the fact that it is so convenient, easy to use and most importantly, the amount of time we save by utilizing Parent Square is the best perk yet 😃.
Sending alerts, texting parents and teachers in a private/group setting, adding fun photos, uploading PDF forms, posting sign-ups, etc are just some of the reasons why Parent Square is such a huge hit. It is a total “game changer.“
I highly recommend Parent Square to any school who wants to improve/enhance the “parent to school connection.

I love Parent Square because it seems easy to use to communicate to staff, parents and students. It has so many tools to work with and I am new and can’t wait to start using it. I feel with all the tools it has all messaging and posts will be fun. I love the gifs you can post also. Thanks so much for making communications fun.
We officially migrated recently and we love ParentSquare – everyone thinks it is really easy to use. And, no need to boot up your laptop just to send out a message – just use the app! We are also using their translation setting for our ELL families, with languages like Nepali, Kinyarwanda, and Swahili, and a local translator reports that the translations are “perfect”!
